    Single gear vs multiple gears

    LarryC - I’m 60 and live in an area with a lot of hills. I had not ridden a bike in over 20 years and wondered about the need for gears with multiple PAS levels. Surprisingly, I find myself using the gears a lot In conjunction with the PAS. Particularly on hills with PAS level 3 or 4 those...

    Wiredbean - I chose the Evelo Aurora specifically because I live in a very hilly area. The 750 Watt Mid drive motor was the main feature for the hills. So far it is working great on the hills. I find that using the peddle assist is better than going to the throttle on the hills. Not sure it...

    Bike Wheels with adequate weight limit

    When I inquired about Trek bikes, I was told they could support 300 pounds, but the 300 pounds included, the rider, any cargo, and the weight of the bike itself.

    Aurora Mid Drive ordered

    Picked up my Aurora today from the LBS. They had to install a new NuVinci shifter and cable. I also had them change the seat to a Cloud 9 Cruiser style saddle with springs. Between the troubleshooting, shipping time from Evelo, and how busy the LBS was the whole process took about 3 weeks...

    Foldable Ebikes with belt drive

    Hi - I am looking for folding Ebikes with a belt drive. I would prefer motor to be at least 500 W. Anyone have any recommendations or experience? Thanks in advance for any information you can provide. I have seen the Evelo, & Pedego with belt drive and motors in the 350W range.

    Aurora Mid Drive ordered

    Still patiently? Waiting to get my bike back from the LBS. Evelo had to send a new NuVinci shifter and cable. Between troubleshooting, shipping, and LBS being busy with many customers it has taken a little longer than hoped.

    Big and Tall rider and my new Evelo Delta

    Phil - how is the thudbuster seatpost and the cloud 9 seat working for you? I was looking at that but according to the Crane Creek site the thudbuster is only rated to 250 pounds. That made me a little nervous. Sounds like you got a nice bike!

    Aurora Mid Drive ordered

    Picked up my Aurora from the LBS today. Sadly the NuVinci display does not light up. I think there is a short. Tried quick trouble shooting via email with Evelo to no avail. Back to LBS tomorrow for them to troubleshoot.
